(2020) (voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Comedy/Musical: A Troll Queen hopes to reunite various factions of Trolls through a common love of music, only to learn that one ruler wants to force her style of music onto everyone else.
Once upon a time, all of the various types of Trolls were unified through their common love of music. But different styles and tastes eventually led to a riff and the forming of six different Trolls tribes -- Pop, Rock, Country, Funk, Techno, and Classical. All of that comes as a surprise to Queen Poppy (voice of ANNA KENDRICK) and her loyal friend Branch (voice of JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE) who've recently saved their village from a much larger species with an appetite for Trolls.
Poppy learns of the six different tribes from her father, King Peppy (voice of JEFFREY TAMBOR), after receiving notice of a hard rock tour by Queen Barb (voice of RACHEL BLOOM). While Peppy warns her that no good will come of that, and Branch thinks it's a bad idea, Poppy sees it as a way to reunite the various tribes back into one happy Trolls family. Unbeknownst to them, Queen Barb and her hard rock followers have already laid waste to the lands of techno and classical music.
With Branch reluctantly joining her and realizing they have an unintentional stowaway, Biggie (voice of JAMES CORDEN), with them, Poppy hopes to get to the land of country music to warn its ruler, Delta Dawn (voice of KELLY CLARKSON), of what's coming, but she and the rest aren't impressed by Poppy's pop music medley and throw all of them in jail.
Fortunately for them, Troll horse Hickory (voice of SAM ROCKWELL) springs them from that and they hope to warn the land of funk ruled over by Queen Essence (voice of MARY J. BLIGE, King Quincy (voice of GEORGE CLINTON) and Prince D (voice of ANDERSON .PAAK), all of whom have a connection to Poppy's friend, Cooper (voice of RON FUNCHES), who previously wandered off in search of other Trolls like him.
With Queen Barb intent on forcing her style of music on the rest of the world and turning everyone into hard rock zombies, it's up to Poppy and her friends to make sure that doesn't happen.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Younger ones probably will, especially if they liked the first "Trolls" flick.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some mild rude humor.
